Monthly Media Round-Up: May Edition

Warmer days have arrived and the home stretch towards summer is (finally) here. It seems May simply flew by, especially as we’re busy prepping for the opening of The Broadview Hotel. Before June seeps in, let’s take a moment to recap all that happened this past month.

We’re still riding high off our media preview event last month that debuted new renderings of the hotel and invited people to experience a first taste of The Broadview Hotel. Post City Toronto featured these renderings this month and covered our virtual reality tour. It seems they’re just as excited as we are about our rooftop patio:

“Possibly the most dazzling and anticipated feature of the hotel lies on top of the building: A rooftop bar and terrace that will offer sweeping views of the Toronto skyline, Don Valley, and the local neighbourhood. And in the case of less than stellar weather conditions, an indoor component of the rooftop has a 100-seat bar and is covered by glass walls and a pyramidal skylight.”

We also received extended coverage from The Real Estate HouseIIDEX Canada, and Indie88. Indie 88’s write-up even includes a video they produced back in October when we lit up the hotel for the first time.

The Broadview Hotel was also featured this month by Air Canada’s enRoute as one of the 10 Coolest Hotels Opening in 2017! Joining other worldwide projects such as Freehand Los Angeles, The Ned in London, Alila Fort Bishangarth in Jaipur and Gran Melia Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, we’re honoured to have been selected among such great company.

“Arched windows and lockers inherited from entertainers who used to work at the club share the space with updates like a four-storey glass cube atop the original building. The structure will provide illuminating features like floor-to-ceiling windows, an enormous skylight and a rooftop bar complete with an atrium and views over Toronto’s east end.”

Thank you, enRoute!

We’re now full steam ahead with The Broadview Hotel and we cannot wait to share even more details and the hotel itself with you soon!
